 Details: English Breakfast was never designed or formulated all those years ago. Rather, teas were chosen that were plentiful and not too expensive, and that would taste good with milk and sugar. Something an English person would enjoy at the start of a busy day. So in the early 1800s, that tea would have been a black tea from China, and this is where we take our inspiration. Later on, many Brits drank the brisker teas from the British colonies of India and Ceylon. After the Second World War, when the colonies became independent, the source of English Breakfast for the British became Africa. We do have some blends that are inspired by these regions, however, this English Breakfast, like the original, is Chinese black tea.
 Dry Leaves: Our English Breakfast is different from many others, as it has short charcoal gray leaves.
 Liquor: Dark brown.
